What happens where the current boundaries have been edited since the
initial import?

e.g. Where the boundary follows some geographical feature that is difficult
to survey, like a river.

Often the river tags have been added to the ABS data way. Removing the
boundary removes the river. I have seen rail lines like this as well.
